Lesson 13. Posting Videos > Using Videos in Tumblogs

Using Videos in Tumblogs

If Tumblr’s policy on uploading audio files—one MP3 file, up to 10MB in size—is impressive, then its policy on uploading videos is spectacular. In partnership with the video file-hosting site Vimeo, which is “movie” spelled sideways, you can upload a total of 500MB of files per week. This is large enough for an hour-long video of reasonable quality. This can be all in one file or in as many individual files as you like.

This is in addition to your use of YouTube or other video-hosting sites. When your video is hosted on these sites (or even on video), you can embed the video in your tumblog. Basically, you include a link to video in your tumblog; the video displays on your page as if it were hosted on the same site. (YouTube, among others, puts its logo on videos it hosts, so the process isn’t completely invisible to the user.)
